The Chairman of the Anti-Impersonation Committee of the NBA in the branch, Ihediohanma Akponye, who spoke when members visited the state Commissioner of Police, Abutu Yaro, said fake lawyers were causing huge economic loss to the state.
The lawyer said the NBA was unhappy at the spate of fraud-related cases coming up in the state.
He commended the police in the state for arresting an alleged fake lawyer recently, adding that more persons, who impersonate practitioners of the profession should be apprehended and prosecuted.
